The issue of the Fuhrer’s reign has been considerably narrowed in the last 24 hours, the grand contentions about jobs and Confederate monuments now being totally subsumed by one fundamental question: is the United States of America a nation of laws where they must be obeyed by all citizens, or is one billionaire playboy above the law?

These desperate measures suggest a tremendous amount of guilt on the part of the presidency of a man who stood up in three debates charged with fraud, illegal tax write offs, and 16 meticulously documented incidents of sexual assault. A President does not have any legitimate authority to impede a federal investigation of his criminal actions and neither do members of Congress.
